Nadeau Aerospace and Defence Contractors Limited, or just refered to by its short name as Nadeau, is a large Vexillium aerospace & defence company. Founded in 27 BP by merchant and inventor Layne Nadeau at the request of King Timon, the Conqueror, Nadeau is one of the oldest companies on Vex. It originally produced cannons for the Royal Army and Navy, but through the centuries has evolved into a modern Aerospace and Defence corporation. The company develops and markets military aircraft, missiles, computer equipment, tanks, artillery, munitions and related systems. The company is headquartered in Wesmerité in Port Angela. With major production facilities found in Port Angela,Scona Bréa, Innisfail, Côté and Argyle, Wesmerité.

History Edit

Founded in 27 BP by merchant and inventor Layne Nadeau at the request of King Timon the Conqueror, who wanted a reliable domestic supplier of cannons and muskets. The Company standardized cannon size and munitions within the Kingdom and, to keep up with demand, would help commercialize and implement many innovations of the Industrial Revolution.

On February 23, 207, King Jade I watched a demostration of powered flight at his estate at Lister. Nadeau Foundries President Yves Nadeau was among the many guest at the first powered flight in Merité and he remarked to the King that his company could manufacture something like the aircraft flown. Since then Nadeau Aircraft (Now Nadeau Areospace), a division of Nadeau Foundries, has built military aircraft exclusively for the Merité Kingdom and Commonwealth. It became one of the primary aircraft manufacturer to the Wesmerité governmenta after the The Fall.

On July 25, 308 the Nadeau Aerospace confirmed their interest in a 20% share of a new company Vex Aerospace. Despite being in the aerospace industry for 97 years, Nadeau has never entered the civilian aerospace market. Nadeau has a reputation for building solid, reliable aircraft, though critics state it's technology and designs are becoming outdated. Nadeau has seen contracts and demand for it's aircraft fall because of smaller size of Wesmerité's air force after the Fall. The 20% stake in Vex Aerospace is seen by the comapny as away to revive profitablity, access new markets and modernize technology.

Nadeau's 20% stake in Vex Aerospace is underwritten by the Imperial Bank of Angela, Wesmerité's largest Bank, who encouraged Nadeau to accept the venture. It is a public secret Delacroix conglomerate would like to fully modernize and incorporate Nadeau's product portfolio into the new company, however it remains to be seen if that is possible. Nadeau had one final ace to play in the negotiations, a detailed design for a new, modern air superiority fighter proposed MF-107 fighter jet, which immediately caught the eye of Aethelnian military officials.
